WATCH: Dr. Fate’s helmet found in new Constantine trailer

June 9th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr 2 Comments

NBC has released a new trailer for Constantine, which offers a bit of new footage including what appears to be Dr. fate’s helmet. Could this be a hint that Doctor Fate himself might show up in the series, or is it just an easter egg?

What do you think?

Doctor Fate (also known as Fate) is the name of several fictional characters in the DC Universe who are a succession of sorcerers. The original version of the character was created by writer Gardner Fox and artist Howard Sherman, and first appeared in More Fun Comics #55 (May 1940).

“Based on the wildly popular comic book series “Hellblazer” from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine (Matt Ryan, “Criminal Minds”) specializes in giving hell… hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight — or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he’s decided to leave his do-gooder life behind, but when demons target Liv (Lucy Griffiths, “True Blood”), the daughter of one of Constantine’s oldest friends, he’s reluctantly thrust back into the fray – and he’ll do whatever it takes to save her. Before long, it’s revealed that Liv’s “second sight” — an ability to see the worlds behind our world and predict supernatural occurrences — is a threat to a mysterious new evil that’s rising in the shadows. Now it’s not just Liv who needs protection; the angels are starting to get worried too. So, together, Constantine and Liv must use her power and his skills to travel the country, find the demons that threaten our world and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows… maybe there’s hope for him and his soul after all.”

The series stars Matt Ryan, Lucy Griffiths, Harold Perrineau and Charles Halford and will premiere on Friday October 24th, at 10 P.M. EST.

    Btw, just behind the Helmet of Fate is the Ibistick of Ibis the Invincible.
